Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli has wowed Leicester City fans at their Premier League title celebrations before the secured a 3-1 win over Everton on Saturday.

The legendary Italian singer paid tribute to his countryman Claudio Ranieri after the coach guided the Foxes to a remarkable Premier League title.

To begin the party ahead of the club's first game as Premier League winners, Bocelli took to the stage to serenade Ranieri and the raucous stadium, bursting out with the classic 'Nessun Dorma' and following with 'Time To Say Goodbye'.

The crowd fell silent in respect for the world-famous tenor, before joining in and singing the final few lines along with him.

Bocelli paid to fly himself to Leicester and performed for free after promising his good friend Ranieri he would make an appearance if his team held their nerve and clinched the title.
